19 August is World Humanitarian Day, a day to honour #HumanitarianHeroes who have lost their lives, and those who continue to serve in dangerous conditions and at great risk to themselves. I’ve met amazing UNICEF staff in countries as far reaching as the Philippines, Sierra Leone and South Africa who work day in day out to tirelessly save the lives of thousands of children.
One area where humanitarians are going the extra mile is in #SouthSudan, where 50,000 children could die from severe malnutrition by the year’s end. They are doing whatever it takes to bring these children food and medical care, even in the most remote areas. Last month, humanitarian workers were killed by armed fighters doing just this.
I am amazed by their courage and they need our support so they can reach these children with urgent treatment, to help ensure that they can recover and thrive. You can help UNICEF save children’s lives in #SouthSudanNOW! Here’s how: <a href="http://uni.cf/helpsouthsudan" target="_blank">http://uni.cf/helpsouthsudan</a>
